The most significant individual item is the farm account book of Robert Loder of Princes Manor Farm, Harwell, 1610 - 1620 (published by the Camden Society, 1936). Other items of interest include detailed farm accounts kept for John Loder, 1677 - 1679, and an almanac and pocket diary for 1655 believed to have been kept by the regicide Henry Marten (a former owner of the Hinton estate).
